Thank you so much for the thoughts and sharing your experiences with me. I'm probably going to move forward with this setup. I will post an update when the stuff shows up. Please let me know if anyone else has any thoughts!

 

Thank you again for your time and advice :)

Thanks for the feedback!

 

That's awesome you were on the same wreck. I loved it there. I wish I had a red filter for that GoPro. I ended up adding so much to the red channel in color correction, even "inventing" parts of the image to tint w/ red. Most of the cuts are employed to cut around really unusable shaky stuff, I had no rig whatsoever, just the GoPro housing to hold onto. Some kind of tray system with handles would have been really nice to have.

Thanks for the great feedback. I am new to shooting underwater and hope to learn as much as I can before my next film oriented dive. I have a 5D mark3 that I am considering buying a housing to shoot with. This shoot was very spur of the moment, I was filming top side for a cruise line and was dropped off from my job in St. Lucia. One of the guys on my team had a brand new GoPro Hero 3 and we were going wreck diving, so I just said, "why not" and my wife and I shot it.

 

In cutting this I really did want to give the viewer the feeling of diving, this feeling is what hooked me, and I hope to share this with people who have never been deep underwater.

 

I'm really hoping it's not too terribly long, I will consider chopping it down if I hear that more.

 

The GoPro definitely suffers from limited DR, I'm hoping the 5D3 will be enough improvement. I am a bit worried it will leave me wishing for more, such as a 1DC or RED or Blackmagic. Something with RAW or at least  LOG.

 

The GoPro 3 has a flat port, so I don't think it's the housing, I think it is the optics therein. I can be wrong here, I'd love to hear some more opinions on it.

 

Thanks again for your comments!

Hello!

 

I'm a Director and Cinematographer from the Commercial / TV world. My wife is a Commercial Producer and Oceanographer and she introduced my to diving 3 years ago. I'm hooked. Our passions have been steadily aligning and we are looking forward to shooting many films underwater.
